Scattered showers and storms expected Sunday with a Flash Flood Watch for parts of SE Texas

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — The disturbance in the Gulf moved into TX early this morning. The disturbance is spinning over the Hill Country now, and the flow around that system is pumping that moisture-rich Gulf air in to SE Texas.This is bringing us scattered showers and storms across the area. We should see rain chances decrease a bit overnight Saturday into early Sunday morning, but those rain chances should bump back up by sunrise Sunday. Because the ground is super saturated, even an inch of rain could cause some street flooding issues. Drivers should use caution over the next few days.

We will still have a lot of moisture in place for Sunday with the highest moisture amounts to the west of Harris County. This is why we have a Flash Flood Watch in effect for Colorado, Wharton, Matagorda, and Jackson Counties from 1 am Sunday to 7 am Monday.

We’ll need to monitor for potential minor coastal flooding as those onshore winds elevate the seas and tide, a Coastal Flood Warning has been issued for our coastal communities. We also have a Rip Current Advisory in place, so it’s best to stay out of the water.
